The Eagles initially determined that quarterback Mike Vick has a broken right hand. Closer evaluation showed that he merely has a contusion, but questions remained regarding whether he’d be able to play with the injury.
The answer to those questions is yes. (Maybe it was only one question.)
Vick said Wednesday that “there’s [a] 100 percent chance that I’ll be out on the field this week.”
But the injury isn’t healed. “I tested it in the walk-through and it’s pretty painful, but I have to do what I have to do,” Vick said. “I have to get out there and support my teammates, and try to get back into it.”
Vick fully participated in practice, along with four other Eagles: safety Nate Allen (knee), receiver Riley Cooper (concussion), receiver Steve Smith (knee), and tackle Winston Justice (knee).
Cornerback Brandon Hughes (hamstring), receiver Jeremy Maclin (hamstring), and defensive end Juqua Parker (ankle) did not practice. Defensive end Darryl Tapp (pectoral) practiced on a limited basis.
The Eagles host the 49ers on Sunday.
